The never before released recording captures the band and the mounting excitement that took place just weeks before the release of Electric Ladyland; Blu-Ray - includes the acclaimed full-length documentary At Last The Beginning: The Making of Electric Ladyland plus a new 5.1 surround sound mix of the entire original album by Hendrix's original engineer Eddie Kramer plus the original stereo mixes in uncompressed 24 bit/96 kz high resolution audio.
The Electric Ladyland Deluxe Edition also includes a full color, 48-page book containing Jimi's handwritten lyrics, poem and instructions to his record label, as well as never before published photos from the recording sessions that were shot by Eddie Kramer himself.
All of the above is packaged in a luxe casemade book with new cover art which is true to Hendrix's original vision of the album's cover: a Linda (McCartney) Eastman photograph of the band and children at the statue of Alice In Wonderland in New York's Central Park.
"...There's a 90-minute documentary on the making of the landmark album...making this an irresistible "get" for Hendrix aficionados and completists....Remixed by the album's original engineer Eddie Kramer in 5.1 surround sound and remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tapes in 96/24 high resolution, Electric Ladyland still sounds like a message from the future. From the epic "1983... (A Merman I Should Turn To Be)" to the wah-wah-soaked, harpsichord-inflected, gospel-choir-backed "Burning of The Midnight Lamp" to the jazzy after-hours feel of the organ-fueled "Rainy Day, Dream Away", this is Hendrix at his most expressive and poetic." - Bill Milkowski, The Absolute Sound, February 2019
